Presented by the Cornish Theater and Performance Production Departments

A talented group of Cornish students – on and offstage – are supported by a group of Seattle’s finest theatrical professionals in staging the classic Weekly World News’ story about a half boy/half bat creature discovered in a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia.

"Bat Boy’s potent mix of satire, social conscience and heart makes it a perfect match for the Cornish mission to facilitate our students’ education as artists, citizens and innovators,” said Richard E.T. White, theater department chair. “It allows our performers to stretch themselves in transformational character work while providing a visual scope that is a terrific challenge for the Performance Production designers given the possibilities in the Playhouse.”

Talkin’Broadway.com called the show “a bravura piece of remarkable foolery. The fast paced musical is jam-packed with good songs, palpitating rhythms and campy dialogue.”

Bat Boy: The Musical was recognized as the best Off-Broadway musical with the Lucille Lortel Award, two Richard Rodgers Awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Outer Critics Circle Award in 2001.
